Matt Denton’s Amazing 3D-Printed Star Wars D-O Droid
Matt Denton has a 5-part series on YouTube of him building a D-O droid from Star Wars.
For the brains, Matt used an Arduino MKR-W1010, MKR Proto Shield, MKR-IMU inertial measurement shield, and MKR motor shield. For the sound board, he employed an Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board. For servos, he used Lynxmotion and Dynamixel.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
